RS3PE 8Remitting, seronegative, symmetric, synovitis and pitting edema) is a disease that characterised with acute onset and usually symmetric involvement of distal side of the extremites as wrist MCP, PIP ankle joints and accompanied by pitting edema of the dorsum of the hand and over the feet. This syndrome has been described by Mc Carty and his coll. in 1985 as a subgroup of seronegative rheumatoid arthritis. There is high incedence in elderly man over 60 years old. Bony erosion and degenerative changes do not occur. The edema is exquisitely sensitive to small doses of corticosteroids. A mild flexion contracture of wrist and phalengeal joints may be permanent in some cases it is known that pitting edema is developed as a result of local reaction rather than relation to systemic causes. In this case 60 years old male, with RS3PE were reported and has been reviewed by current literatures. Locomotor disabilities, frequency, socio-economic sutiation
